Looking for Easter Eggs in Pixar films has now become a yearly pastime.  The animation studio hides plenty of regular in-jokes in its most recent films, and it’s also tradition to include a tease for the studio’s next film as well.  Monsters University is no different, and now Pixar is fessing up to the film’s Easter Eggs by providing images for some of them.  The only one I spotted during the film was the Pizza Planet truck, but as you’ll see after the jump the film also includes references to the Luxo Jr. ball and the number A113—a nod to the CalArts classroom where Pixar’s original animators got their start.

Bob Peterson, director of next year’s Pixar film The Good Dinosaur, has confirmed that Monsters University does indeed include a reference to his film, but it is sadly not included in this batch of official images.  For the Easter Egg hunters out there, Peterson hinted on Twitter to “follow the toys.”  Hit the jump to take a look at the images of Monsters University’s Easter Eggs.

The following are images of A113, the Pizza Planet truck, and the Luxo Jr. ball, respectively.  Let us know in the comments if you spotted any other Easter Eggs in the film.
